In Detail

As far-right sentiment surges in France - and lawmakers continue to concern themselves with hijab bans - the time is urgently right for artists to challenge the country’s enduring history of Islamophobia.  ‘Nobody’s Hero’ seems like a useful contribution in that regard.

Set amid the tense aftermath of a radical terrorist attack in the placid central French city of Clermont Ferrand, Guiraudie’s film wryly comments on a middle-class society that oscillates between liberal altruism and wary prejudice.

This setup is combined by a separate narrative detailing the same protagonist’s troubled romance with a married local sex worker: Both a bedroom farce, and vital political satire.
